[A] brilliant combination of the analysis of political history and the mass media in pre- and post-colonial Nigeria. The book will be suitable as resource material for students, scholars and practitioners of political science, history, mass media and discourse analysis. JOURNAL OF MODERN AFRICAN STUDIES
This book is an asset to anyone who desires to, as closely as possible, experience major historical events in Nigerian history. [It] is a brilliant piece of evidence that there are non-anthropological methods to unearthing deep understanding of what exists today in Nigeria. As such, the book is recommended reading not just for Nigerians and Africans, but also for the common student of politics. PUBLIUS: THE JOURNAL OF FEDERALISM
This is a thought-provoking book which takes a novel approach to some of the most fundamental questions facing contemporary Africa. It deserves a wide readership. AFRICAN JOURNALISM STUDIES
The book represents a major contribution toward understanding the immensely complex role that newspapers have played in the political history of postcolonial Africa; it provides a unique and indispensable reflection on the very specific ways in which postcolonial societies have approached democracy.
